The 50 cheapest, most exciting products on Amazon

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

Amazon is always stocking up on new things to buy for your body, home, and life — and some of the most exciting things on the online retailer are so cheap when you consider how much they impact your life. Of course, cheap does not mean a downgraded version of something you may already have. Cheap just means that it’s actually possible to upgrade parts of your life without shelling out a ton of cash. Amazon makes that clear.

There are genius products like this defrosting tray that uses thermal conductivity from aluminum to quickly thaw frozen meat and these cleansing facial sponges that end up costing just 20 cents each when purchasing the pack. But there are so many cool new things that I felt compelled to make this list to make the endless possibilities of fun, exciting, and cheap stuff on Amazon easier to navigate.

So before you go out and spends hundreds on fancy-looking products that aren’t guaranteed to have a quality that matches the price, scroll ahead.
